Have a discussion with my dealer inspector about cheating devices use in casinos the day before.
Sure to work: pinhole cameras embedded in chips or carried by dealers themselves in card games like baccarat scam; connected to a source who perform analysis and transmit data to player’s spy earphone. well…millions can be won but the penalty is severe.
Roulette computers: He does not really believe in Rcs, stating there are too much uncertainties in a live game. Examples are things like irregularity of spins, diamonds and ball scatters.
First of all, the player needs to find a good RC. The foremost consideration should be whether the algorithm is correctly designed. Does it accurately measure ball deceleration speed to the point where it losses its kinetic energy and at the same time correspond with the in coming rotor number. if this is not design correctly, everything is a mistake from the start.
But even if this can be done perfectly, the result cannot be perfect .
The diamonds are there to break the kinetic energy before it die naturally. it can be a revolution, 3 quarter or half, and then the jumps kicks in.
How does a RC combat the diamonds in a level wheel.
Will the computer identify the diamond with the highest probability to hit?
It seems like players will specifically select and clock a diamond as a drop zone…in that case (taking the hit rate of 4 vertical diamonds to be almost 80%) the probability of selecting the correct diamond is 25%, then chances that it hit the selected diamond is 20%
Of course theoretically if Rcs is good, then the win rate will be 1 in 5.
Another question is does the Rcs predict 2 diamond drop zone? for example give predicted number 28 and 17 which are quite far apart?
It seems that one of the ways to combat jumps are counting the pockets from the predicted number and preset it. thus meaning if Rc predicts number 3, the player should program RCs to add or subtract pockets as the new prediction. This approach is still random, maybe that is the best that one can do.
To me, i would consider a RC to be extremely good if the algorithm is correctly designed and calculates fast. Issues like jumps and hitting the correct diamonds really cannot be controlled. Maybe that is why sometimes players with RCs still lose.
Maybe a good Rc is a science, and the actual playing is an art. It relies on experience, intuition and how to utilize the potential of the Rc.
Even with RCs, we have to be realistic though…luck plays a part. like what forester says, ‘A Rc is not a miracle’…it does not guarantee a sure win…
